Who we are

The NN Cannery History Project is a grassroots collaboration between Alaska historians, museum curators, community members and Trident Seafoods to collect, preserve and share the stories of the “cannery people”: the company personnel, local residents, Native groups, commercial fishermen, and chiefly, the cannery workers, whose important, although often ignored, activities are reflected by and embedded in the industrial landscape contained within the historic NN Cannery property at South Naknek, Alaska.

 
 
 
 

OUR MISSION

Our project not only strives to document the mechanical method of canning salmon implemented in canneries across Alaska, but is dedicated to preserving, documenting and sharing the stories of the multitudes of people who conducted such activities, and created an ethnically diverse, economically vital, cannery workforce and culture…They are simply known as the Cannery Worker.
